Dine Out Tonight to Give Aid for AIDS

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

Tonight you can dine out at some of L.A.'s top restaurants and support a worthy cause at the same time: it's time again for Dine Out LA 2008, a city-wide event that raises money for the organization Aid for AIDS. Check out the list of participating restaurants, which are donating 20% of all profits to the charity, which helps prevent homelessness and hunger for individuals and families impoverished and disabled by HIV/AIDS.

There are a lot of great restaurants on the list, including The Hungry Cat in Hollywood, The Oinkster in Eagle Rock, both Hugo's locations, and the Cha Cha Cha in Silver Lake. But you don't have to break the bank at a place like the Hungry Cat: more affordable options include Astro Burger in WeHo and The Gumbo Pot at the Farmer's Market. Those of you who like to plan ahead can go to the OpenTable website and make reservations through their dedicated Dine Out LA page.

It's a breakfast-lunch-dinner affair as well -- so if you don't have time to go out tonight, you can always hit up the nearest spot on your lunch break. You can also enter to win one of two Grand Prize Giveaways: 2-night spa packages at either Loews Santa Monica or Loews Coronado Bay. Doesn't it feel great to eat and give?
